Morning Glory


morninggloryBecky Fuller (Rachel McAdams) is hired as the new executive producer of Daybreak, the struggling, number-four national morning show, and her first major challenge is to find a replacement for the co-host that she fires on her first day.Ā Writer Aline Brosh McKenna delivers a script that shares similarities with herĀ The Devil Wears PradaĀ (2006), but she knows which buttons to push. McAdams gives a solid lead performance as the workaholic who tries to pump some juice intoĀ Daybreak. Sheā€™s a perfect target for Harrison Fordā€™s grumpy outbreaks, and heā€™s a lot of fun as the aging reporter who looks a bit like Bob Woodward. Undeniably formulaic, but funny and energetic.

2010-U.S. 107 min. Color. Widescreen.Ā Produced byĀ J.J. Abrams, Bryan Burk.Ā Directed byĀ Roger Michell.Ā Screenplay:Ā Aline Brosh McKenna.Ā Song:Ā ā€œStrip Meā€ (performed by Natasha Bedingfield).Ā Cast:Ā Rachel McAdams (Becky Fuller), Harrison Ford (Mike Pomeroy), Diane Keaton (Colleen Peck), Patrick Wilson, Jeff Goldblum, John Pankow.

Trivia:Ā Several TV journalists appear as themselves.

Last word:Ā “The film is particularly about morning television. It’s not about news. It’s not trying to say that news is being dumbed down, or has been dumbed down. I think there are all kinds of issues with news, particularly in America, which are not actually to do with dumbing down. They are much more serious than that. [ā€¦]Ā Always, in morning broadcasting, there’s going to be this debate about the balance between hard news and fluff. And the film doesn’t attempt to answer exactly what that balance should be, but it tries to raise the debate about what people really want, what they think is the right diet for them.” (Michell, Den of Geek)
